August 8th 2012

Morgan Hill, CA, Aug. 8, 2012: The OpenADR Alliance today announced the release of the OpenADR 2.0a Profile Specification, the only existing open data model to exchange messages for Demand Response (DR) events between a service provider, aggregator and end-user in commercial, industrial and residential markets. OpenADR 2.0a is one of a suite of Smart Grid communication profiles that provides dynamic pricing, grid reliability and transactional signals using a server-client model to convey information rather than a network based control structure.
